Researchers have created quantum dot light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that can produce entangled photons, which could be used to encode information in quantum computing. As of June, the record for the most photons entangled at a time was 10. Before that, the record was eight and that could only be produced at a rate of around nine events per hour.
Research out of the University of Surrey has found battery alternative material, or supercapacitor, that is 1,000 – 10,000 times more powerful than traditional batteries. These supercapacitors could provide the boost electric vehicles need to break into the mainstream since they will be able to perform at lengths comparable to gas powered cars.
Researchers at Aston University, a British research and educational institution based in Birmingham, are attempting to replicate the brain’s neural networks using 3D nanoprinting techniques. The project, called MESO-BRAIN, will use pluripotent stem cells generated from adult human cells.
Quadriplegics move hand exoskeletons using brain signals and eye movement, and not just in the lab
Researchers have published a paper demonstrating how they were able to create the first fully programmable and reprogrammable quantum computer in the world. Other quantum computers in existence at the moment can only run one type of operation.
Italian 3D printing company WASP has introduced the Maker Economy Starter Kit, a shipping container of 3D printing equipment for constructing houses. The kit includes six 3D printing systems, including the Big Delta’and DeltaWASP 3MT 3D printers, as well as tools and raw materials.
